Hello All,
I have to display jpg files placed in some real path(not in web context). Along with images i also have to display header and footer text. I am unable to display both images and text together. I am using this code:
public void doGet() {
File f = new File("D:\\ImageArchive\\file1.jpg");
com.sun.image.codec.jpeg.JPEGImageDecoder decoder = com.sun.image.codec.jpeg.JPEGCodec.createJPEGDecoder(new FileInputStream(f));
java.awt.image.BufferedImage image =decoder.decodeAsBufferedImage() ;

javax.servlet.ServletOutputStream sos = response.getOutputStream();
com.sun.image.codec.jpeg.JPEGImageEncoder encoder = com.sun.image.codec.jpeg.JPEGCodec.createJPEGEncoder(sos);
Thanks in advance....

I don't see anywhere in your code where you actually write to the response, but in any case, no, you cannot mix images and text.
What you CAN do, is to generated HTML with text and image tags that reference the image. To serve images that cannot be addressed via URL, I'd write a servlet that can read and serve the image (and only the image) and reference that in the src attribute of your image tags.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
